Design Studio Activities

A collection of 16 activities for designing Scratch projects.

This is a collection of 16 activities for designing Scratch projects. Whether you are new to Scratch or have been using Scratch for a while, these activities are intended to help you think about the possibilities for different ways of creating with Scratch. Each activity presents a constraint – some element or idea that should be included (or not included) in your project. You might be using a particular tool, working with a theme, including specific blocks, integrating a unique visual element, or following a predefined structure.

I love this resource!  These are great quick hits for small chunks of time or to stimulate deeper thinking with more time.
